If you want the normal James Patterson, then don’t read this. The writing was not as bad as I have seen other reviewers state. This IS NOT a thriller. This is a dystopian Sci-Fi. You’ve been warned. Given that there were a lot of predictable parts in the plot and had incestial overtones, the book was a 2.5 star read and I think you could skip it. All that said if you do read it, it has some Bladerunner tones with a Holocaust theme.
